Winner Dinner 9





Do you ever look at your dinner plate and get all excited? Well I do all the time. The fact this gorgeous dinner was whipped up by my mom impressed me of her plating skills. There comes a flying slap if she reads this. No, but seriously she did a great job of that upside down Dalia and the sauteed Spinach. She said that Dalia looks so much more edible like this and I couldn’t agree more. For this dinner, cucumbers were cut by me, everything else mom did.

Dalia and Spinach with Dal

  • Lentils
  • Spinach
  • Cracked wheat
  • Cucumber
  • 2 teaspoons of oil
  • Sesame seeds

– Lentils – Yellow dal prepared by mom

– Spinach –  Sauté fresh leaves in a hot pan with a teaspoon of oil and sesame seeds

– Cracked Wheat/Dalia – Take a teaspoon of oil and add fresh garlic to it. Add water and Dalia and pressure cook on medium for 2 whistles. Be fancy and pour the hot dalia in a bowl for 10 minutes. Scoop it out directly on the plate while serving

– Cucumber – Salad seasoned with black pepper


  • Dalia again is our Desi super food if i say so myself.
  • There are so many ways we can prepare it.
  • It is an excellent source of dietary fiber.
  • It improves digestion.
  • High in proteins and low in calories.
  • Rich spurce of Vitamin B1 and B2.

PS – I made a Dalia salad in under 10 minutes, recipe and pictures here.
